The perfect gathering basket for the little loves in your life to take exploring on all of their memory making adventures.   Whether it be gathering foraged treasures, collecting eggs from the farm, hunting for Easter eggs or storing craft supplies - these baskets are the perfect accessory for any Little Explorer. 

Artisans in the Bolgatanga region of Ghana weave these beautiful and durable baskets from thick, tough elephant grass which are either left natural or dyed with mineral and non toxic fabric dyes. These high quality baskets have a fixed leather handle for carrying comfort and an open top for accessibility.  They are the perfect eco-friendly, sustainable option for your little babes. Safe for our planet, safe for your children. 

This beautiful item is fairly made in Africa and each artisan is able to work from the comfort of their own community.  These baskets help to support the local weavers and their families by ensuring a stable income which helps them to care, educate and provide for their family. 

Your basket will include a wooden Wander + Wild branding disc and attached shaping instructions for you to follow at home. 


+ Sized at approximately 19cm wide and 14cm high (excluding handle) however sizes will vary as they are individually made.    

Please Note: Due to the handwoven nature of the baskets, sizes may differ slightly and the item may have characteristic blemishes on either the base or the handle which add to their unique authenticity. No two baskets are the same.

The Perfect Little Basket

I purchased this basket for my daughter's 2nd birthday and she is obsessed (so am I)! The quality is incredible and it feels like it will last for many years.
I also must mention the beautiful and speedy service I received. I'll definitely be back for future gifts :)

The cutest little basket to collect our chicken eggs safely without them cracking in my pockets or falling out of my top like I used to do. Love

Lovely baskets

I will come back for more in the future when they are restocked! I bought the natural handle ones and they are just perfect!
